Composting in a cardboard box
Hey everyone :D
My boyfriend does roving IT work where he has access to folks that are throwing out large computer boxes, usually around the 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 x 2 1/2' range. Anyhow, since he's able to bring home such a great bounty and since we rent space in the house and don't want to invest in an expensive composting fixture, I was wondering if any of you have experience in composting *inside* boxes, or if it would even be worth it to try. We may be here for another growing season or two, but probably not a whole lot longer. We have a nice stack of leaves raked this spring (buncha 20-year olds in a house~ yard work isn't something that happens too often!) and some newly mowed grass clippings that I'd love to be able to convert into something useful. I produce a lot of veggie kitchen waste and there is a Starbucks within walking distance, so greens would not be a problem. Oh, and I have a hamster-- he would be doing his part, as well :D
Thanks for the input-- I love you soil and composting folks!
